Marvel Studios’ final Eternals trailer arrived today and sets up a large-scale continuation for the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). It shows off Richard Madden’s laser vision, towering Celestials, and teases answers as to why a group of superpowered beings didn’t show up to help after Avengers: Infinity War saw half of the universe exterminated. There’s a lot more action in this final Eternals trailer than we’ve seen in the past, as well. When the film hits theaters this November, Madden and the rest of the Eternals crew have seven days to “find the others” and save humanity from the Deviants. Until then, you can see your latest MCU trailer below.
The Chloé Zhao-directed Marvel movie has been a long time coming, with COVID-related delays pushing movie industry plans back months. Casting was announced back in 2019, and it finally received some teaser footage in a Marvel hype trailer from this past May. The first teaser trailer arrived later that same month and finally showed us a look at Madden, Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, Kumail Nanjiani, and the rest of the cast in action. Eternals may be one of the rare few Marvel movies to strike a different tone with Choé Zhao at the helm, as the director said the film has manga influences and it includes a Bollywood dance scene. It shot heavily on location as opposed to on green screen as well.
“I shot exactly the way I wanted to shoot,” Zhao said last year. “On location. A lot of magic hour. Three-hundred-sixty degrees on the same camera as I did on Nomadland (another film she’s working on). Same rigs. It’s a bit surreal. I’m still waiting for the shoe to drop. It hasn’t. I think I got lucky in that Marvel wants to take risks and do something different.”
Expect to see the film’s colorful backgrounds, action, and more when Eternals comes to theaters on November 5, 2021.
